    I wasn't sure that I would like this because I really like slaw recipes with a creamier type dressing, but this was really good, and a lot healthier than those other versions. It also was very easy to throw together.

    This is nice and quick and I like the fact it doesn't call for oil/mayo. Tasty way of getting in some cabbage.
